    What I Like...so Far

    This is my first pregnancy. I'm only two months exactly and I've already had some cravings. Fruit Loops cereal, macaroni & cheese, low fat vanilla ice cream, homemade tacos, and cheeseburgers. Well, that's all I can remember. Most of the time, it's just food aversions.

    Not Many Really ...

    I had a thing for lemon juice at the beginning. Later I was just boringly healthy and loved fresh fruit and natural yoghurt ... Nothing outrageous at all.  No lumps of coal or raw liver (yuck!).
